Glamsquad is the Nigerian version of American television program airing on E! Entertainment Television known as Fashion Police which features co-hosts Joan Rivers, Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos commenting on celebrity fashions.
Just like Fashion Police, the half-hour talk show will be televised before a live audience and will critique and discuss the dos and don’ts of fashion in Nigeria. The show will not only be focused on Nigerian celebrities but also on all socialites and wannabes. Glamsquad however has a comedy undertone and is positioned to pioneer and redefines fashion and style in Nigeria.
Remi Diagbare, an important member of the Glamsqaud crew is a seasoned Journalist, Presenter and Editor of Vanguard newspaper weekly pull out magazine-Allure. Remi Diagbare brings her 24 years of wealth and expertise in journalism to the show.
The show is co-hosted by four fashion forward ladies; Latasha Ngwube, Contributing Editor for Vanguard Allure, Odun Ogunbiyi, Fashion Stylist for Today’s Woman Magazine, Megha Joshi, Correspondent for Vanguard Allure and Wunika Mukan, a seasoned Broadcaster from Washington DC.
Other Glamsquad crew members include Jide Omidiran as Director, Bayode Ojo as Script and Content Consultant, Adeyinka Akingbade as Creative Design Consultant, Chalya Shagaya as Set Designer/Stylist and Bola Fadina as Beauty Consultant.
The show which promises to be a hit was recorded live at the Wheatbaker Hotel in Ikoyi, Lagos and is a production of Tegali Communications with post production by Blackwell Studio. The show is expected to air on DSTV, Ben TV London and Silverbird Television.
Just like its American version, there will be guest appearances from notable personalities and celebrities to keep the audience entertained.
The various segment of the show will include “Airbags”-where a celebrity is guessed based solely on the amount of cleavage revealed by their outfit. “Who wore it better”- where two or more stars are shown to have worn the same outfits and the panelist discuss the outfits and declare one person a winner. “Hit or Miss”- in which a photograph of a person is presented, often the person in question will spot revealing or disheveled clothing.
Other segments include “O.T.T” (Over The Top)- the panelists X-ray and bring celebrities who overdress all in a bid to make a fashion statement but have unconsciously committed a fashion faux-pax and “Be weave it or not this is where the panelists critique weaves.”
Glamsquad is not out to slam celebrities and socialites but has the sole intention of critiquing, correcting and making their targets aware of the fashion statements they are making.
Many people see figures in the public eye as role models hence Glamsquad wants to create a cultural relevance in style, fashion and awareness.
Glamsquad is here to fill the missing link in the fashion showbiz world in Nigeria.
